VANCOUVER. B. C, June 20. (Spe

DodKlne nrocess servers Is a new
scheme in the line of events which
nave made up a string of chapters In
keeping the East Indian Invasion out
of British Columbia, for it is feared
that once the Hindu question gets into
court months and months must elapse
before the question can be solved, and
then nerbaDS with a victory for the
Warships Cause Uproar.
The Hindus aboard the Komagato
Maru were In a great state of excite
ment this morning. There Is no doubt
that their countrymen ashore have pre
pared them to look for sudden action,
following the arrival of the Japanese
warships. When the Japanese flagship
today passed close to the Hindu steamer
her rails were lined with turbans
waching the proceedings.
A great uproar was in progress
aboard the Komagato Maru. The Hin-
dus were evidently working up exclte-
ment, and there was . considerable
artlvity along the decks.
The Japanese officers of the Koma
gato Maru were busy establishing com
munication by signal with the flagship,
and later in the day Captain Tamamoto
went aboard the warship Asama and
told his story. He is eager to return
the Hindus to the Orient, but the Hin
dus hold the crew In terror.
Armed Force Right Doubted.
No armed force of Japanese blue
Jackets can be placed aboard the
Komagato Maru while she is in Brit
ish waters, is the opinion of men con
versant with International law. While
the Komagato Maru remains in British
waters the Japanese cruisers can only
staud by in case of trouble and place
their men on board after the mer
chantman has passed outside territorial
waters, or, in other words, the three

she reached the three-mile limit, and
then the cruisers could take a hand.
